workplace wellness awards

The Active Southern West Virginia Workplace Wellness Award recognizes and celebrates healthy workplaces that promote employee wellness by implementing Policy, Systems, and Environmental benchmarks. 
Each year, members of the Active SWV Workplace Wellness Program are invited to apply for recognition as a bronze, silver, or gold level Active SWV Member Organization. Those who receive any level of recognition have spent the year creating and implementing action plans to increase employee physical and mental health through short and long term programming. The review process for this, created in partnership with WVU Extension, looks at every level of health and wellbeing from leadership participation to action planning, implementation, and outcomes. These awards are to recognize those who have dedicated time and effort to finding ways to get their staff living healthier and happier lives. 

This Award Program is proudly brought to you by Active Southern West Virginia in partnership with the West Virginia Division of Health Promotion and Chronic Disease (HPCD).
